    Escape The Night is the longest running YouTube Original series out now. This star studded cast includes many of your favorite YouTubers like Shane Dawson, Liza Koshy, Safiya Nygaard, and me - MatPat! However, being a cast member does not stop me from theorizing about the mystery at the heart of the show - what is going on with our leading man, Joey Graceffa? Looking over the seasons and the new Escape The Night All Stars trailer, I've realized something VERY IMPORTANT. Joey is not on the same side as his YouTube friends. In fact, he is their biggest threat!

    I dunno if it’s just me, but when I was rewatching the series and looked closer at the characters, 2 members of the dark army fighting the confederates in season 2 looked a lot like the 2 characters in season 3 who represented the “society against evil”. This probably doesn’t matter, and I’m probably wrong, but I’d like other people to check that out

        Escape the Night is a cool concept, but I feel like you have to have at least one person you're rooting for. That's why I liked season 3 so much, there were people I really wanted to make it and people I really wanted to die, but I haven't experienced that with the other seasons. Maybe season 4, but it's not free right now like the others...

                    I am usually a passive viewer, and I doubt you'll see this anyways- but I wanted to say thank you for making these videos. Whenever I feel like I'm going to have a panic attack, I usually try to distract myself. Which often means watching YouTube. Your videos never fail to take my mind off of it and put me at ease. So, thanks!

                        MatPat and Safiya were the best of season three. Good thing they brought you back right before Saf died. They wouldn't have stood a chance without ya'll

                                      hey matt i have another theory

                                      season 3 is before season 1 let me explain

                                      if that arm really does look like calliope and spoilers she dies at the end of s3 that could mean one thing after calliopes death her arm was put in the s1 mansion for some random reason and then we lead up to the point the guests find the clue and what else i find weird is joey has the same hair style in both s1 and 3 along with the hair style so something tells me that s1 came after s3 and that was a blast to the past but HEY its just a theory

                                      an etn theory
